DWA-160 HW B2, Firmware 2.40
« on: June 14, 2018, 02:08:33 PM »

I have the Subject adapter installed and the unit will drop out while on the internet and I loose my connection. The LED is off when this adapter stops working. I then unplug and then re-plug in the adapter and I get my connection back.
I am using the USB extension that was supplied as well as using the rear port USB terminal of my desktop. I also have the latest driver installed.
I am running Windows 7 64 Bit professional.

I would appreciate any help w/ this.

Did the adapter work for a while and this is just now happening or has it dropped connectivity since you first installed it?

Does it drop consistently with Internet connection or is it random?

What model router or extender is it connecting to?

1. Try a different USB port

2. Try it without the USB extender
